This modern Christmas Tree Pillow is designed to be displayed in your home year after year, even with changing decor. I love how the simple moss stitch pattern worked on the diagonal has a sort of woven look to it.

This pattern is for the front panel of a pillow cover only. There are instructions at the end of the pattern on how to attach the panel to a fabric pillow cover.

This pattern also creates a gorgeous wall-hanging if you don’t feel called to make a pillow ? While I don’t have instructions for the wall-hanging bit, the pattern does include some photos taken by amazingly creative testers if you need some inspiration.

The pillow cover is crocheted from the bottom up, starting with a small triangle shape which then increases in size as you add rows.
Once the required width is reached stop increasing at the sides.
Once the required height is reached, you stop increasing at the top, and the fill in the 2 corners to create a square.
